This gluten free hack for using waffle mix will help add nutrition to breakfast, and they still taste amazing.
Does your family love gluten free waffle mixes, but hate that most mixes lack nutrition?”
This has been a constant source of frustration for me. My kids love waffles, but if you have looked at the ingredients, you know they aren’t all that healthy. I like to send my kids off to school with enough protein to prevent them from being hungry an hour after breakfast.
Over the holidays, I got a waffle maker (thank you Mr. Fearless Dining :-). I have wanted one for a long time. I envision all sorts of things being created….both sweet and savory.
The kids were so excited to give this new kitchen toy a try this morning. I had a box of Trader Joe’s waffle mix on hand and I wanted to try it out.
Then I read the label.
Only 2 grams of protein and not much in the way of nutrition.
Not the best way to start out the day. I decided to add a few things in to make these waffles healthier.
And my son’s favorite way to eat these healthy waffles?? Just wrap them around an Aidelle’s Chicken Apple Sausage and add syrup :-).
